THE Australian Professional Rodeo Association will hold its nationals finals for the second successive time at the Warwick Showgrounds in late October.

The best 15 in all eight APRA events will compete in The Carlton Dry Warwick Rodeo National Finals on October 27-30.

The finals will be held in conjunction with second division and junior rodeo events and the annual Warwick campdrafting.

The first three rounds of the finals will be on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and then the final round on the Sunday afternoon at the Warwick Showgrounds.

While the leaders in each event will carry pro tour points into the finals, it will be performances in the four rounds in Warwick which will largely determine the title winners.

All of the riders who had the most success in individual finals last year won the titles.

Last year, Shane Kenny from Emerald won four titles, rope and tie, steer wrestling, team roping and all around.

As he has only qualified for the nationals finals in two timed events, Kenny is still the favourite for the all around but will need to be at the peak of his form to beat past winner Shane Iker and Victorian pair Terry Evison and Lee Kimber in the battle for the all around.

Table Top (NSW) rider Stephanie Gard won the cowgirls title last year and is again one of the favourites.
